It looks like we’ll be seeing more of the iconic Avenger soon. Marvel is reportedly working on Captain America 4, the Hollywood Reporter said Friday. Malcolm Spellman, the head writer and creator of .series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is said to be writing the script. No word yet on who‘s been cast, but it would likely star Anthony Mackie‘s Sam Wilson character as Captain America
Spellman will supposedly co-write the script with Dalan Musson, a staff writer on said show.
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America or Steve Rogers was played by Chris Evans up until the phenomenal “Avengers: Endgame,” where the hero handed off his iconic shield to Sam Wilson, played by Anthony Mackie.
Mackie wielded the shield in the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” which also starred Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes.
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” which premiered in March on Disney Plus, centered on the legacy of the shield and who was the right person to carry it. It also focused on the dynamic of Sam and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), both of whom were close friends of Steve.
The series, which premiered on March 19, just recently aired its finale.
Back in January, Deadline reported that Evans will return as Captain America in some capacity. Evans and Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige both denied the report. Evans made his debut as Steve Rogers/Captain America in 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”. He reprised the role for two standalone sequels: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
